HIPS - Hip Protection System
HIPS hip protection system is designed to effectively divert the impact from a fall away from the fragile bone. The product is developed primarily for the use of elderly people and especially vulnerable groups. HIPS is easy to use.
The HIPS shields are made from safe, flexible plastic that comfortably contours to the body. Both the shields and the undergarments are breathable, allowing air to circulate so that you barely notice you are wearing them. The shields are permanently fastened into the undergarment so that the system is ready to wear.
(The hip protector will only work properly when placed correctly. We do not warrant or guarantee that the use of the HIPS Hip Protector System will prevent all hip fractures.)
Who will benefit from using HIPS?
People suffering from osteoporosis, dizziness, bad eyesight, frail elderly people with a tendency to fall. The protector can be compared to using a crash helmet, only here it protects your hips.
